I always thought Amsterdam’s Masons called their organization’s meeting place the “Welcome” Lodge to make everyone feel at home. Then I learned about today’s birthday celebrant.
I share his story in the new 2nd Edition of my book “A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam NY Birthdays” which will be available for sale on Saturday, December 10, 2016. If you’d like to receive a copy from the first printing, fill out this reservation form and someone will contact you. The book will also be on sale at Liberty Fresh Market (4867 NY Route 30, Amsterdam, NY 12010) beginning that same day!
